Chris submits a new novel

I forgot to mention that I sent off the first 40 or so pages of my novel, "Empire Ship," to the editor who's been sitting on "Transcendence" for three years now.

Reasonable? One might argue not. But I learned that the publishing house where he works had a ban on buying new novelists' work for most of those years, and his stringing me along might indeed be promising -- I mean, heck, he was talking publication dates and everything a year or two ago. But if I hear nothing in a few months, I go elsewhere.

Just an "I'm a writer again!" moment that I thought I'd share.
